Decorating a small space can be a challenge. Below are super simple ways on how to handle your decor in a small residence.
If the size of your space is posing design challenges, remember the key to developing a comfortable living area is having a space-efficient plan.
Every square foot is usable, and choosing the right piece can make all the difference in making your room feel bigger than it really is. Style placement and functionality are the key components when battling small square footage.
Consider the clean, simple lines of contemporary furniture or at the very least, transitional pieces. They will help to improve sight lines and minimize visual clutter. There are many contemporary sets that come in smaller sized proportions so you can save space and still get the look you desire.
Square footage is measured side by side, but life isn’t two dimensional. Make the most of your small space by going vertical. Mix in some taller pieces that serve dual functions such as a table lamp that also serves as an end table or an entertainment center that also has tower shelving for books and pictures. You can also utilize wall space upward for storage by adding shelving.
Utilizing multipurpose pieces is an intelligent way to avoid overcrowding. For example, you can use a coffee table that works also as storage and a work space all in one. Or a vanity table in a bedroom that can also double as a desk.
Keep it Simple
It is entirely possible to go overboard when decorating a small room, so try to avoid using busy patterns. Sticking with solids and simple patterns will help keep the palette clean. You can still have fun with color but keep it simple.
Making every inch count is entirely possible in a small space. Just remember, clean lines, simple pattern or solids, go vertical and multi function furniture and you’ll have yourself a very usable and pleasingly decorative small space.
